Xactly Corporation was founded to solve an important challenge: how to help people everywhere connect and unleash their human potential through seamless, perfectly aligned Sales Performance Management. Xactly’s comprehensive Sales Performance Management (SPM) suite leverages data from a sales performance AI platform to provide timely insights across the entire SPM value chain, from sales planning to execution, including compensation to optimization. Xactly takes Sales Performance Management from a dark art to a science, providing decision-makers with the data insights they need to tap the motivational power of their incentive compensation. With access to predictive analytics and benchmark data, enterprises can now optimize territories, design the right compensation and incentive plans and accelerate attainment and optimization of sales performance.
As manager of the User Experience Design team at Xactly, you are joining at a pivotal time as the team is expanding in size and influence in building Xactly’s products. You will be the advocate for user experience and manage all design aspects across the entire product suite. You will manage a team of six distributed professionals in San Jose, Denver, and Toronto.
With the growth of the team, you will be able to define how to allocate design resources, help drive maturity in the company’s design system, grow the User Experience Research program, and continue to grow the design culture within the company. We are looking for someone who is dedicated to UX excellence and a strong advocate for the importance of UX design as part of the product lifecycle. You will be involved in the entire design process, including defining the vision and processes, getting involved in interaction design, user research and usability testing, and pushing towards pixel-perfect product.
Xactly’s UX Design team is part of the larger Product Management team. We are a lively, tight-knit team of innovative forward thinkers, always collaborating and striving to discover the best solutions for our users. The UX Design team is responsible for taking on complex business processes and transforming them into intuitive, easy-to-use designs for sales compensation admins and sales representatives around the world.
We are expecting you to bring 3+ years of solid professional experience as a UX Designer working on large-scale, complex enterprise products and 2+ years of experience managing a distributed design team. You’re a strong communicator and advocate of UX design, with experience in growing the design culture at a company. You enjoy leading the team but also enjoy getting your hands back into design as needed. You have a track record of shipping polished, intuitive products.
